INFRASTRUCTURE SECTOR

Whatever way you look at it, the infrastructure sector in the UK is big business. Government figures suggest over 2,500 projects have been completed since 2010, with projects worth £277 billion currently in construction and a further £189 billion of future investment in the pipeline.

High-quality infrastructure boosts both productivity and competitiveness and allows businesses to grow, enabling them to better reach suppliers and markets. Infrastructure has the capacity to unlock economic potential in individual regions and ensure that growth and opportunities are distributed across the country, while also creating networks which bind together the different parts of the UK.

So the need to choose a legal team who understand the long-term nature of the work you are involved in, and to keep abreast of development and help you achieve the outcomes you want is of vital importance. At MacRoberts, our Infrastructure team has been top ranked for several years, being awarded a Tier 1 ranking by Legal 500 for 2015. We advise our clients on all aspects of infrastructure investment in the primary and secondary markets, including procurement, bidding, financing, project finance, variations, refinancings, sales, and disputes.

Our team has advised on over 60 PFI/PPP/NPD projects throughout the UK with a combined value of over £4 billion, all of the “Non Profit Distributing” (NPD) projects in Scotland, the largest Scottish Health PPP project, and the largest Scottish Education project.

With our Construction, Banking, Corporate and Property teams, our lawyers work across the full spectrum of all the major classes of infrastructure, including:
